i say it is good to indulge yourself from time to time and a mini staycation in between a busy, hectic schedule can help relax your body, mind and soul. and so lets indulge ourselves from time to time shall we?! i have always been inlove with VIDA DOWNTOWN ever since it opened its doors. located at the heart of the ever trendy downdown dubai, vida is a hotel worthy of any city staycation. my love affair took place last week and let me tell you…it was surely sweet.


first of all, its very modern contemporary interiors was perfectly blended with its rather arabian architecture. it houses several well-loved restaurants and it is a very common choice for client meetings, and a favorite hang-out by many dubai yuppies. check-in was a breeze and the room was everything you would expect in a great hotel. because the hotel is near dubai mall, i took a nice walk around and did a little shopping in between. i had dinner by the pool and would have to say that the food was amazingly good. enjoyed it more because of the view and the great service. one of the things i do look forward to a staycation is sleeping. yes. i like my sleep. and vida has got one of the most comfortable beds i have had the pleasure of sleeping on. i slept so well, i didnt even want to get up. the main attraction of vida downtown is the pool. and my goodness, was it beautiful. i woke up early though coz i wanted to take a relaxing dip just before i had my breakfast which is considered as one of the best in town. the presentation of the breakfast was the cutest – with the famous mason jar making its special appearance. the selection was endless and i dont think i have had so much breakfast in my life.

VIDA DOWNTOWN is great for those who mini-city-staycations and surely a fabulous choice if you are an out-of-towner visiting dubai and would like a more city feel. the fact that the everything is just a couple of minutes away – from dubai mall, the glorious burj khalifa, the buzzing sheikh zayed road and dubai financial center, the beautiful beaches of dubai and the of course, the old dubai where the museum, bastakiya heritage village and creekside is located, this hotel is my best bet.

i had an amazing stay and cant wait to give it a go again. next time, i so need to try the weekend brunch and vida food truck which everyone has been raving about lately. yes. i so love my food too.

special thanks to team vida and my love to the birthday girl tinayums
